We have prophesied many times over the years about a "new sound coming from the underground." What I am discovering this sound to be is much different than I had thought. I thought the “new sound” would be edgy - musically iconic - but there is so much more! There is a weighty anointing on this sound, which comes from “deep crying out to deep” (Ps. 42:7) – the deep, underground places in our hearts crying out to the deep desire, compassion, and mercy of our Heavenly Father.
Our tribe is highly prophetic, and Holy Spirit will often have us “live out” a prophetic word, demonstrating what He is saying and releasing on the earth. When our ministry moved into our underground location on State Street near the Capitol in Madison, WI (August 2017), we began to hear the Lord speak regarding the workings of His Spirit in the underground. He desired for the fire of His love to go deep into our roots and foundations, and the fruit produced would be astonishing and generate rapid multiplication! We quickly discovered this would take great courage for us to go to deep places in our own souls as we interceded for the foundation and soul of our nation. We would also discover the need for more grace, for one another and ourselves, as we would be crushed together like grapes being prepared for “new wine.” Our journey has been an invitation to come “deeper still, beloved.” (SOS 5:2 TPT) After this season of crushing and going deep, we now sense the time is drawing near in which we, the radiant Bride of Christ, will come up out of the wilderness leaning on our Beloved with fresh vision and joyful strength! (SOS 8:5)
At a recent regional worship gathering, we were honored to be joined by Christian brothers of the Ho-Chunk Nation. There was a holy unity and powerful spirit of intercession released. With profound emotion and spiritual significance, John WhiteCloud shared about the power of the drum, the sound it releases, and how it is connected to the human heartbeat. He and Sheridan Cloud then presented a beautiful Native American song. It is significant in this time when the lives of the unborn are under attack that God is bringing to the forefront of our worship the sound of the heartbeat – the sound of life. May the hearts of drummers be gripped with the revelation that as they drum it prophesies LIFE and the very heartbeat of heaven over our nation!
As our brother of the Ho-Chunk Nation shared with us, his speech was strained and difficult to understand, but the anointing with which he spoke was so pure and powerful, the depth of his sound resounded in the deep places of my heart. He shared how grateful he was to have survived throat cancer, which was caused by Agent Orange while serving our country in Vietnam. I thought about the injustices his people had suffered, and here before me stood a man who spoke with such forgiveness and life, it was evident he had gone to deep places with the Lord where few have traveled. With great courage this man has found his way with Jesus to the other side of trials and pain. This holy moment was not edgy or musically iconic, but it carried the weight of the Kingdom.
The new sound from the underground is about worshippers arising in spirit and truth from deep places of pain, testing and trials. King David was one who wrote his real, raw process in the Psalms, and this same anointing will come upon worshippers who will put their journey into all kinds of creative expressions. They will write songs with a cutting-edge sound. They will paint it out, dance it out, share it on social media, in movies, or in one-on-one interactions with people. However it is expressed, it will carry the answers the world is looking for. With so much pain on display in our nation, this new sound of life, joy and hope will be so profound it will break open the hearts of men to encounter our beautiful King. This new sound will send forth seismic waves of love and shake forth revival from the underground! We will see the great harvest come in!
Beloved, let the new sound from the underground come forth from you as you take the beautiful, nail-pierced hand of our King and allow Him to walk you through the valley of the shadow of death (pain, trails, and testings). There is a greater resurrection power coming for those who learn to lean on Him and live in radical obedience. There is a wide-open space of victory, hope and life waiting for you! Your testimony is the sound that will shake the ground and set captives free!

This word was published on Elijah List with the following introduction by Steve Shultz:
"Derene and I really love this couple, Steven and Rene Springer! What a dear and grace-filled presence of the love of Christ that constantly surrounds them. Here is a spot-on word of the Lord about what is BREAKING FORTH from the Throne of God on the earth this year of 2019 (5779). Read this quote by Steven Springer, which is part of this Word:
'God is releasing His Kingdom solutionists who have the true light and revelation to solve cultural issues, like Joseph, Samuel, and Daniel, who had influence and favor with leaders. Where New Age mediums have forced their counterfeit ways into places of influence, God is opening doors of favor for His prophets and seers who, being moved by the impulses and the leading of the Holy Spirit, will bring light into places clouded by the enemy's counterfeits.'"
As we enter 2019, there is a deep work of the Spirit happening, cultivating and birthing something so great, this year we will only begin to see the fullness of all God is bringing forth. From the birthing will come extreme acceleration, a season of suddenlies. I saw the Lord put His foot on the pedal and push it to the floor. The momentum is becoming a movement! This movement will shift this generation into new realms of Glory. It’s a move of Holy Spirit, spirited by forerunner friends of God!!!! We will begin to see extraordinary signs, wonders, and miracles. God is getting us ready to see 2020 with clarity (20/20 vision), where we will experience even more of the fullness of His Kingdom coming.
Birthing bells are ringing!
I heard the Lord say, “The birthing bells are ringing. It’s time to birth the breakthrough.” I was not familiar with the term “birthing bells,” but a Native American friend of ours shared with us about the traditional headdress of Native American women, which had bells on it and would be used when a woman went into labor. It would be looped over the rafters of the wigwam and the ends used as handles to grip during labor. The community would hear the bells and know the baby was coming!
A time of travail is upon us, and our response in order to birth the breakthrough is to P.U.S.H (Pray Until Something Happens). Even as Elijah heard the sound of the abundance of rain, the manifestation didn’t come until his intercession and travail birthed the breakthrough. (1 Kings 18:41-45)
Awakening, Shaking and Building
There is an awakening sound and an awakening wind that will blow, uprooting mindsets, corruption, religion and complacency. It is going to get windy between now and Pentecost in June!!!!
It is a seismic year. Shakings will happen as the seismic waves of love are released. Creation is groaning for the true, mature sons and daughters of the Kingdom to come forth!
There is a new apostolic and prophetic grace being released for strategies to disciple nations and build the Kingdom according to Jeremiah 1:10: a time to dismantle and to re-mantle, a season of building and planting.
“See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.”
Jeremiah 1:10 NKJV
Significance of the number 9 and 19
This 9/19 season is a time to enter the goodness of God in ways many have not seen or experienced before.
The number 9 (from the Hebraic year 5779) is connected to the Hebrew letter Tet. This letter appears first in Scripture in the Creation story in the Hebrew word “Tob,” which means, “good.”
The Hebrew number 9 resembles the shape of a womb.
9 represents the perfect movement of God, awakening, inspiration, the fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), andconveys the meaning of finality.
The number 19 (from the Gregorian calendar year 2019) denotes a transition time – the closing of one season and the opening of a new – and denotes God’s perfect order (the combining of 10 and 9).
The Lord highlighted to me several 9:19 Scriptures and revealed prophetic insight for this season, which I will share in this word.
A year of multiplication
It is a time of great multiplication. Many sons and daughters will be born again and brought into the Kingdom of light. They will release the glory of the Lord from coast to coast, continent to continent. A multiplication of resources is at hand, like the 5 loaves and 2 fish that fed the multitudes. Expect a 30, 60, or even a 100-fold return on what you have sown. It’s an overflow season ofpresence, grace, provision and favor.
“These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated.”
Genesis 9:19 NKJV
A season of the Awareness of Divine Protection
God’s hand (IS 41:10), His hedge (Job 1:10), His angles (PS 91:11), His written word and His proceeding Word.
“Quick! Order your livestock and servants to come in from the fields to find shelter. Any person or animal left outside will die when the hail falls.”
Exodus 9:19 NKJV
A season of the manifestation of Holy Spirit and the glory like Acts chapter 2 and the outpouring at Azusa Street. Sons and daughters will be led by the weighty presence of Holy Spirit, just as the Israelites were led by the cloud of glory in the wilderness. A season of extraordinary miracles is at hand, not just healing miracles, but an array of miracles like multiplication miracles, parting of the Red Sea, and walking on water. Revival breaking out in places of His Presence. A season of birthing the new! A new day rising! The Lord is preparing His people to be dispensers of the New Wine and dispensers of His Goodness. “Your people will be your love offerings like living sacrifices spilled out before you! In the day of your mighty power you will be exalted, and in the brightness of your holy ones you will shine as an army arising from the dawning rays of a new day, anointed with the dew of your youth!” Psalm 110:3 TPT
“Even when the cloud continued long, many days above the tabernacle, the children of Israel kept the charge of the LORD and did not journey.”
Numbers 9:19 NKJV
A year to shift the rebellion of nations, those steeped in idolatry and complacency! Through the increase of fervent prayer and intercession, we will shift nations toward grace and righteousness. The Lord hears our voice as we partner as warring worshippers, releasing His love for nations! God is looking for a reason to show mercy. God is placing it in our hearts to be intercessors, just as Jesus is.
“For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure with which the LORD was angry with you, to destroy you. But the LORD listened to me at that time also.”
Deuteronomy 9:19 NKJV
A fresh anointing of the seer is being released and revealed! A new breed of the seer anointing is coming forth, invading spaces (realms) and places (geographical locations) with heavenly revelations and Kingdom solutions. Kings and leaders of different spheres of society will lend their ear and give attention to what the seers are seeing and hearing. God is releasing His Kingdom solutionists who have the true light and revelation to solve cultural issues, like Joseph, Samuel, and Daniel, who had influence and favor with leaders. Where new age mediums have forced their counterfeit ways into places of influence, God is opening doors of favor for His prophets and seers who, being moved by the impulses and the leading of Holy Spirit, will bring light into places clouded by the enemy’s counterfeits. “Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” Isaiah 60:3 AMP
“Samuel answered Saul and said, 'I am the seer. Go up before me to the high place, for you shall eat with me today; and tomorrow I will let you go and will tell you all that is in your heart.'"
I Samuel 9:19 NKJV
There will be cities of great resource in the nations of the earth for Kingdom advancement and establishment! God is beginning to raise up cities that are so transformed by His love and power that they become cities of refuge, resource and influence. They become storehouse cities, hubs for Kingdom wealth, just as in Solomon’s day. There will be divine transfer of wealth: abundant resource being generated and transferred from the world into Kingdom purposes. This will be linked with the keys of longevity and legacy. (“Good people leave an inheritance to their grandchildren, but the sinner’s wealth passes to the godly.” Proverbs 13:22 NLT) There will be whole new Kingdom banking systems and trade routes for Kingdom wealth and commerce, marked by integrity, influence and innovation. This will displace and disrupt demonic economic structures.
“He built towns as supply centers and constructed towns where his chariots and horses could be stationed. He built everything he desired in Jerusalem and Lebanon and throughout his entire realm.”
I Kings 9:19 NLT
The Lord is creating thin places, places where the veil of separation between realms is so thin that heaven and earth are one. They will be places of His presence with the overflow of glory that affects cities and regions and nations, establishing His Kingdom. They will be incubators of revelation where sons and daughters discover the truth of who God is and the truth of who they really are. As sons and daughters spend time in His presence, where there is fullness of joy and the restoration of identity, the Father will share His secrets of things to come with them so they may partner with Him in the advancing of His love, mercy and Kingdom. These sons and daughters will change the world, they will change spiritual climates over nations. “Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.” Jeremiah 33:3 NLT
This new breed of sons and daughters will be Gatekeepers for the Lord’s Presence! Jealous for the Lord’s Presence they will tend to the flame of first love and be mindful of the religious spirit that would defile and complicate the grace and the love of God! These sons and daughters are Priests and Kings: worshippers first and foremost, ministering to the heart of God, and from this place they take dominion, subduing the earth.
“Shallum the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, and his brethren, from his father’s house, the Korahites, were in charge of the work of the service, gatekeepers of the tabernacle. Their fathers had been keepers of the entrance to the camp of the LORD.”
I Chronicles 9:19 NKJV
It is a year of God’s abounding mercies and His desire to lead His people in manifested Presence. Many who have felt trials in the last season are coming to the other side and will see the Lord in the light of his love leading them to the victory, to their destinies and to their territory.
“Yet in Your manifold mercies You did not forsake them in the wilderness. The pillar of the cloud did not depart from them by day, To lead them on the road; Nor the pillar of fire by night, To show them light, And the way they should go.”
Nehemiah 9:19 NKJV
There will be great shalom and praise this coming Purim, a time for remembering the Lord and celebrating His victory. It is a season of being removed from the enemy’s snares. We rejoice in our breakthrough! March 21 will be a marking of great grace to the family of God. A time of springing into the new!
“Therefore, the Jews of the villages who dwelt in the unwalled towns celebrated the fourteenth day of the month of Adar with gladness and feasting, as a holiday, and for sending presents to one another.”
Esther 9:19 NKJV
In weakness we are made strong. God alone is strong. Rely on him. The courts of heaven are open; the books are open. The Lord will vindicate you – expect it.
“If it is a matter of strength, indeed He is strong; And if of justice, who will appoint my day in court?”
Job 9:19 NKJV

Generations Gathering - Stadiums Filled
I had a dream a while back. In the dream I was standing on this large platform in this amazingly packed stadium. Standing with me on either side were Lou Engle and Billy Graham. I could see angels dancing in the heavenlies over the stadium as the sound of a younger worship team released a prophetic sound, exalting the name of Jesus. It caused darkness to tremble and flee. The masses began to respond to the sound. They came forward falling on their knees, face down, being saved for the first time. I saw on one side of the stage – off to the left – people coming out of wheelchairs, people rejoicing who had been blind but now could see, and the deaf who could now hear the symphonic sound of a generation hungry for the Lord! The stadium was like Camp Randall in Madison, Wisconsin: a large football stadium that would seat over 100,000.
The intergenerational unity is key for this next move of the Spirit. This was represented in the dream by Lou Engle (Prayer & Prophetic Intercession, Spiritual Air Force), Billy Graham (Evangelism General), Steven Springer (Healing, Prophetic, Apostolic), and younger worship team of late teens and 20-somethings. Abraham, Isaac, Israel and the sons of Israel: a joining of the generations to see the greatest move of Holy Spirit the world has ever experienced.
A season for stadium Christianity is at hand, and it will be the joining of the generations to usher in the greatest harvest of sons and daughters. The spirit of prayer and burning being released prepares the way for evangelism and great signs, wonders and miracles. Whole cities will be impacted by the power of the Gospel. On Earth as is in Heaven!
“For the intimate secrets of his heart will be brought to light. He will be mystified and fall face down in worship and say, “God is truly among you!” 1 Corinthians 14:25
A New Student Missions
A new student missions movement is being birth from the haystacks of harvest at campuses all across the earth! God is going to fund the movement! It will be like Count Zinzendorf and his Order of the Grain of Mustard Seed: Seed money that will Ekkballo these students to the ends of the earth!
“Then He said to them, ‘The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.’” Luke 10:2 (NKJV)
Third Great Awakening
An awakening sound, an awakening wind, will blow, uprooting mindsets, corruption and religion.
It is going to get windy between now and Pentecost in May!!!!
Shaking will happen as creation is groaning for the true sons and daughters of the Kingdom to come forth. It is a seismic year!
The Gates are Open
The ancient gates are open and the King of a glory is entering in. He is raising up a remnant that will possess the Gates to cities and nations. The Ekkeisia has to possess the gates as they are being opened or the enemy will. We need wisdom, war plans and wealth.
“So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you. You ask, ‘Who is this Glory-King?’ The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way!” Psalm 24:7-8 (TPT)
An Apostolic Pathway that once was and will now be! Thrusting people forth into their destiny and into their domain of influence.
Unity and Oneness of the Spirit
We have entered into a new Era that will require the Body of Christ to function together at a greater level of unity and oneness of the Spirit, which will release the greater glory that Jesus spoke of in John 14:12: Commanded blessing that wants to come but only happens if when the called-out ones the sons and daughters, the Ekklesia will dwell together as one! We need each other like never before.
“If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.” Mark 3:24-25
The 45,000 different denominations will become one in the Spirit! A reversal of the last 500 years! Get ready for commanded blessings to fall on the Ekklesia.
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, coming down upon the beard Aaron’s beard coming down on the collar of his robes. It is like the dew of Hermon, coming down upon the mountains of Zion. For there Adonai commanded the blessing—life forevermore! Psalm 133:1-3 (TLV)
“For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.” 1 Corinthians 12:12 (NKJV)
A Fresh Rain of Holy Spirit
There is a great, fruitful harvest that is coming and a tremendous move of the Spirit like the spring rains. Proverbs 16:15 "In the light of the King's face is life, and his favor is like a cloud of the latter rain"! There is coming an outpouring of His presence, favor and power unto the multitude being saved! It is time to sharpen the sickle and mend the nets!
The Father’s Loving Embrace
I had a vision of the Father with His arms open wide, and He was calling His sons from afar and His daughters from the ends of the earth. He was receiving them all, even ones the church has written off. The Father is bringing in some of the least likely, people of incredible influence, and key leaders from the spheres of society! I also really sense the new agers have a bull’s-eye on them in this season of harvest. During this vision I could feel the energy and excitement of heaven and earth for the season of restoring relationship and the multitudes coming home to the Father’s arms. At one point I saw the Father look at Jesus with a huge smile, and He said, "This is your reward, Son!"
Places of His Presence - Upper Rooms
There are upper rooms erupting all across the earth, these rooms are creating “thin places” where the atmosphere is like heaven on earth, where Holy Spirit is going to break in and break out.
I am sensing that places of His presence are going to be key! Places where the sound of the Spirit is released. Places of healing, signs, wonders and miracles. Places where there is intentional outreach and discipleship! There are places of refuge being established right now; they are epicenters of love and the supernatural power of God that will change and influence regions and nations!We have to Ask, Seek, and Knock! Our persistence will prevail. The wind will blow and the fire will come.
“Suddenly they heard the sound of a violent blast of wind rushing into the house from out of the heavenly realm. The roar of the wind was so overpowering it was all anyone could bear! Then all at once a pillar of fire appeared before their eyes. It separated into tongues of fire that engulfed each one of them. They were all filled and equipped with the Holy Spirit and were inspired to speak in tongues—empowered by the Spirit to speak in languages they had never learned!” Acts 2:2-4 (TPT)
The Bowls Are Full
We have entered a time where the bowls of intercession are being poured out, because what goes up must come down. The fruit that will come forth is nations being saved in a moment!
The Father is inviting us into a fresh encounter with perfect love that apprehends and destroys the spirit of fear. God is pouring Himself out—the sweet honey presence and perfect love will become a contagious, consuming, revival fire that is releasing the Third Great Awakening, healing and restoring the land, and turning people back to God! Get ready to embrace the winds of change and run into the fire.
Be you. Declare truth. Believe completely. Receive abundantly.
Global Presence recently hosted a Great Lakes Gathering called "FORWARD" with Dr. Dutch Sheets and Dr. Chuck Pierce.
5 states from the Great Lakes Region and 119 cities were represented by those in attendance. From the unified sound of worship, to the prophetic words and teachings, the Word of the Lord went forth in power, and it has not stopped.
This is a marking movement for the Ekklesia in this region. We are rising up, with one voice, and we will see the Kingdom of God be established here as is in heaven.
So many calls, texts, and emails have come in from those who were at the FORWARD Gathering, saying what a powerful time it was. We asked people to submit what revelation they had received regarding the region. Here are some excerpts:
"The Forward Gathering highlights for me:
"The teaching by Dutch on how to be aware of the religious spirit, and how the prophetic counteracts that was powerful."
- Mike B.
"I had the sense that the meeting space on March 9-10 was full of those ready to cast their nets out and CONNECT in a new way for Kingdom advancement. There is so much to share about the wonderful meetings, but here is one thing that stood out: Chuck decreed that the DAM HAS BROKEN!"
- Joan T.
(Regarding the number of cities represented)
"119 means spiritual perfection and victory."
"The light was so bright as we worshiped, and God was saying, 'Keep going. I will open the doors of heaven. I have made room for everyone.'"
- Terri R.
"Vision at the closing of the FORWARD GREAT LAKES GATHERING
Steven and Rene Springer called to the platform all participants age 29 and younger, and they came. As they stretched across the platform…
I saw this generation at the the crest of a wide wave, shoulder to shoulder, arms extended - ready for battle, united and 'at the ready' - mounted on what appeared as metal shields (where one might expect a surfboard) on one large wave which stretched the whole length of the platform and vision. These boards were 'not made by the hand of man,' says the LORD. 'These have been forged in the FIRES OF THE TRIALS OF THE GENERATIONS THAT HAVE GONE BEFORE, AND THEY WILL NOT FAIL - YOU MAY FALL, BUT GET BACK ON - FOR THESE WILL NOT FAIL YOU - AS YOU RIDE ON THE WAVES OF MY GLORY AND MY RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THIS HOUR.'"
- Nancy M.
In a recent encounter with the Lord I was lifted up in the Spirit over the waters of a great Sea of Words. These words were every word that had been spoken on the earth since time had begun, whether words of blessing and life, or idle words and death and cursing. I could see some very ancient words spoken by the saints of old and others, more recent, which had been spoken that very morning.
I watched with the Lord the power of words being released from the people on the earth. There were voices from the enemy, speaking lies into the ears of the people of the earth. Some people believed the lies and began to speak them out loud, and the waters began to become treacherous waves and currents bringing destruction. Then there was a Voice of Love and Peace that was being released all of the time, a constant rhythm of grace that, when heard and agreed with and spoken, made the treacherous waters become waves of love and grace with a rhythm that brought peace and Shalom. The word of blessing and life always prevailed.
We are in a great season where our words matter. We will either release waves of blessings so this generation can ride into our destiny, or a storm surge of waves that destroy and hold back the blessing from coming forth. Let’s shape our world with words of blessing and life!
Your life will follow your words! There is power in your words. Choose your words wisely; let them be filled with life and love. Let us plant the things we want, not what we do not want.
Proverbs 16:23-24 The Voice (VOICE)
23 From a wise heart flow careful words;
wise words make the lips more persuasive.
24 Pleasant words are like a honeycomb:
they drip sweet food for life and bring health to the body.
You can have what you say! Don’t doubt or be divided in your heart! Declare and Believe!
Mark 11:23 The Passion Translation (TPT)
“23 Listen to the truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great faith and having no doubt, ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’ and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done.”
Jesus always spoke to the problem, not about the problem.
He shared with us a profound reality: What you speak out of your mouth is what is abundant in your heart.
Proverbs 18:21 The Message (MSG)
“21 Words kill, words give life;
they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.”
Proverbs 18:21 The Voice (VOICE)
“21 Words have power in matters of life and death,
and those who love them will savor their fruit.”

Isaiah 8:18 New King James Version (NKJV)
“18 Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me!
We are for signs and wonders in Israel
From the Lord of hosts,

Remove hindrances that keep you from occupying your promise land
Joshua 8:18 The Voice (VOICE)
“Eternal One (to Joshua): 18 Raise your javelin toward Ai (to bend or twist to the point of ruin), for now I will give it into your hands. Joshua raised his javelin toward the city; (for now I will give it into your hands, great resource.)”
Great resource to accomplish the Lord’s vision for your life
2 Chronicles 8:18 New Living Translation (NLT)

A Dream Visitation: Billy Graham, John Wesley, Charles Finney, and Philip the Evangelist
I received a very vivid and detailed dream, which I believe is timely for the Body of Christ as we enter into a great season of harvest.
In the dream I was in this old beautiful Victorian home. At one point I was led into the parlor, a large sitting room where there was a large fireplace on the wall opposite the door. There was a fire burning brightly, warming the atmosphere. As I looked across the room, there was Billy Graham sitting at a desk in a tall backed leather chair, writing the memories of his journey in ministry.
I noticed that behind him were three painted portraits of three men: one was John Wesley, one was Charles Finney, and the one in the middle was Philip the evangelist of the Bible. Above Philip was a crown of thrones. Billy looked up and saw me. With a smile on his face he set down his pen, got up out of the chair and said, “come here son, I have something I want to share with you.” He began to share and relive his years of saving souls; at one point he reached over to a coat rack to grab an old tweed sport coat. He put on the coat and said, “Come with me.”
Five Barns and The Key
We proceeded to go outside behind the old Victorian home where there were five large barns. As we stood outside the first barn, Billy continued to tell the stories. At one point he reached into his jacket pocket and pulled out a key. Holding the key out in front of him he said, “I have the KEY to evangelism.”
Then at this point the three men from the portraits on the wall of the parlor joined us, Wesley, Finney and Philip. As he held the key out, the other three reached into their pockets and took out their keys. Billy said as he held out the key “The Father gave this to me.” Billy then proceeded to take the key and opened up the large wooden doors of the first barn. It was filled with grain from the harvest. Each one of the men picked a handful of grain and they were all smiling as they looked at the grain sifting through their fingers. So I proceeded to grab a handful. As I looked at the grain, I was amazed to see that each kernel had a name written on it. I was blown away!
We continued to each of the five barns and Billy opened them with the key. Billy then said holding out the key along with the others, “ Do you want the KEY?” I said ”of course!” Billy said, “The KEY is not what is in my hands, it is what is in MY heart-- a friendship with the KING and a love the Father has lavished on me and in me!” Moved by what he just said, I thought he is right—it’s about our relationship with God first.
1 John 3:1 1 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
Mark 12:30-31 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
The Radiant Man
Then another Man appeared out nowhere. He had radiant face. I was hardly able to make out His facial features, He gathered us together into a circle (all five of us with HIM), and as we joined hands we began to be lifted up off the ground. The man with the Radiant face said, “Oh by the way those five barns were full of people Billy’s life and ministry affected!” I thought wow that is just one man’s labor, what if the fields were full of loving passionate laborers, think of the harvest of souls that would enter eternal love. As we got up higher and higher I could see many plots of land below with barns on them. Some barns were big, magnificent and modern, and some small and desolate!
As we flew and looked at the land below, the Radiant one said, “It is harvest time; it is time to fill the barns.” Then He said, “Remember the key isn’t what is in your hands; it is what is in your heart.” Then He went on to say, “Remember the GOSPEL; it is Good news full of loving kindness, grace, mercy and the demonstration of power that leads people to me.
Therefore GO and Harvest
Therefore GO and harvest. It isn’t your programs that will save; it is the message of my Kingdom. The Radiant one left me in the middle of this wheat field. I could feel the wind blowing in my face and tears of joy streaming down my cheeks and a big smile on my face!
The voice of the Radiant one spoke again and said, “GO! For the fields are ripe with the harvest! Reap the reward!” I began to harvest the grain with great joy and vigor. Then it was like an aerial view shot zooming out and pulling away. I then noticed that the field went as far as my eyes could see! Then I noticed that the fields were full of thousands of others harvesting with me!
Luke 10:2 2 Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

I believe we are on the brink of the greatest move of Holy Spirit! All of Heaven is getting ready!
In a recent dream, I actually saw the angel armies making themselves ready! In the dream I was taken in the Spirit into a room. The room was like a locker room glistening bright and full of warring guardian angels preparing their armor, much like a football team before the big game. Some were polishing and adjusting their armor, some pushing each other back and forth getting each other pumped up, while others where wielding their swords and still others intensely focusing on the Lord and the game plan laid out for them. There was a sense of excitement and gladness in the room! One angel said to me with smile on his face, “We are about to blow your mind, we are about to release storms in the earth!” When he said this I was concerned at what this may imply. He laughed knowing my concern and said, “The storms we are stirring up will actually release HOPE, HEALING and HARVEST!“ Then all of the angels got up and stood in formation ready for battle. Then I saw a large hand proceed out heaven and plunge into the room, each of the angels climbed onto the hand. Now the hand pulled back out of the room and wound up and trusted the angels toward the earth. As I stood there watching I marveled at the size of the Lord’s right hand and how I paled in comparison to its size and at the speed the angels traveled. Like flashes of lightning they penetrated the atmosphere and as they did there were portals being opened all over the earth. Immediately I saw angels ascending and descending, releasing these storms just like the angel said, “HOPE, HEALING, and HARVEST.”
Hope is: The is absolute expectation of coming good.
The Lord is restoring hope to His people. In the past where it appeared to be deferred, the Lord is showing His hopefulness to those that will believe in His goodness. There is a veil of doubt and unbelief that is being torn in the Spirit so that the Bride of Christ can see the future and the hope set before her. There is grace and power given to you by Holy Spirit for hope to spring up. As hope arises from within you, you will become an ambassador of hope!
Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
Romans 15:13, Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and shalom in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
There is a new wave of healing coming forth that will cause the church to be a place of healing once again. The Lord is raising His people to radiate His reality that His name is healer (Adonai Rofi). We are seeing a rapid increase of God’s healing power flowing through believers in our body, not only overseas but right here in the USA! In a vision, I saw an unusual group, releasing healing everywhere they went, at the mall, the work place, government buildings, the village, the city, everyplace they went. I saw prominent leaders in society being touch by the power of God and made whole because of these people from all walks of life, willing to take risk to see the Kingdom come and advance. The Bride is about to be overshadowed by the Son and this overshadowing will cause shadows to heal again. I heard the cry! “It is time for the saints to awake, arise, and take dominion as they do the works of the ministry.”
Malachi 4:2 But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings;
Matthew 10:7-8, 7 And as you go, preach, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.”
We are in a time of ingathering and going to see a harvest in historic proportion take place all over the earth, where thousands upon thousands will be added to the body of Christ daily. I see stadiums and large sport areas being filled with the lost, the Gospel of the Kingdom being preached, and the lost running into the Kingdom of Light to be saved. The power and the presence of God will be so tangible that it will change the spiritual atmosphere of entire regions in moment. History belongs to those who pray! It is time to pray to the Lord to send out the Harvesters into the fields. Jesus used the Greek word Ekballo, when speaking to His disciples, which means: to thrust with force, cast out, drive out, to send out with notion of violence, to command or cause one to depart in haste. The Lord longs for the harvest, those that are the reward of His suffering. Even as you pray this prayer today, do not be surprised that tomorrow you are the answer to your own prayer! Swing your sickle and cast your nets, the harvest is at hand!
Matthew 9:37-38, 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
Revelation 14:15, And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.”
